German Film Series: Fremde Haut

Tuesday, December 6, 2022

Space 2435 North Quad Map
Join us for the December Film in this year's German Film Series. Directed by Angelina Maccarone and starring Iranian-German actor Jasmin Tabatabai, this 2005 film follows Fariba, a lesbian refugee from Iran, as she escapes the death penalty, navigates German bureaucracy, endures the difficulties of securing asylum, and encounters Western racism, xenophobia, and homophobia. By depicting migratory, racial, and sexual difference, Maccarone describes this film as an exploration of society's dangerous polarities. Fremde Haut is a drama, a German social critique, and a love story that will leave you reflecting on your own definition of normal. You might find that society's line between what is "right" and "wrong" is not always as clear as it seems.
